St Clare's Parish

Victoria, Australia

Sacrament of Holy Matrimony (Marriage) 

Due to the present situation where gatherings are limited, the Sacrament of Marriage is permissible, with a limit of five people (bride, groom, two witnesses and the celebrant) and the usual statutory requirements. 

It is a sad time that such limitations have been imposed, but the limitation is understandable so together we work to control the virus. It is a very disappointing time for all couples and their families who have been preparing for their great day. We must think positively and realise that what we are going through presently, will only make the celebration so much greater when we are able to do so. 

In the meanwhile please keep up your practice of the faith and let us all pray together for a quick recovery from our present situation.
